171/366 It started raining

It’s around 12PM. It’s not that I’ve wasted the morning, I have been busy doing “stuff”. The realisation came that the day was marching on and I had plans for the afternoon, mainly involving Downton Abbey, a family Zoom and Roast Pork (which was especially nice). If I wanted to go for a walk, I was running out of time.

I said to Alexa (yes, we have one of those); “Is it going to rain in Gosport today?”

The response was “There’s a 56% chance of Rain at 2PM in Gosport, England.”

We decided to take the risk, and because it was a bit cold out we made sure that we wrapped up well. Following the counter-clockwise version of the walk I normally take weekday mornings. It wasn’t raining, but it was like there was a very fine & light mist, not rain, and note completely dry. There is a point on the walk, where we could easily cut it short and return home quickly. As we were nearing that point there was water in the air quite a bit more dense than when we started out, but still not really rain, we made the decision to continue.

As we reached the waterfront, it started raining properly. Not an absolute downpour, but enough to cause us to put our hoods up. Our reward for being out (as I see it) was to the see the ship departing the harbour.

we were quite wet by the time we got home, but our coats had held the water off. We were pleased to have a nice cup of tea, at the end of a walk that we had both thoroughly enjoyed.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
